Salaam Remi: Thief’s Theme vs. Hip Hop Is Dead
If you don’t know, Salaam Remi has got BEATS. In the vid he drops jewels on Nas’ “Thief’s Theme,” whose beat will.i.am similarly flipped/jacked for “Hip Hop Is Dead.”
For the record: “Thief’s Theme” > “Hip-Hop is Dead”; by leaps and bounds. [Hat tilt: Soul Culture]
The sample is from Iron Butterfly’s “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida,” the Incredible Bong Band’s version, if you were wondering.
